The Way to Start a Day

In this Caldecott Honor Book, the way to start the day is to go outside, face the east and greet the sun, as others in the past and present have celebrated the dawn.

"Throughout the book Baylor gives examples of cavemen and cavewomen, of Peruvian Indians, of Egyptians and others who have celebrated the dawn - with drum beats, ringing of bells, gifts of gold or flowers - different people in different ways.  Parnall's glittering paintings alternate between swirling shapes in the vibrant hues of sunrise and strong, equally stunning geometrics that depict Pharaohs, Indians, Congolese, and all whom Baylor offers as examples in this beautiful work"  - Publishers Weekly
